Then control panel - system - device manager and uninstall the modem. Keep modem connected to pc and reboot. After it detects the modem use the modem cd to load only the driver. Let windows manage the modem.

Really need more information to make an educated guess, but if this netgear is recently added, try using the control panel - add/remove and remove all programs for the netgear. Then control panel - system - device manager and uninstall the modem. Keep modem connected to pc and reboot. After it detects the modem use the modem cd to load only the driver. Let windows manage the modem.

I have a new acer that will not recognized the IP address for my internet connection. Internet provider has completed troubleshoot and says it's not their connection.


if you go to ("start/run and type CMD" if XP) or (start / -in "start search here" type CMD , if it is a vista) and you should see a black window, in it, type --> ipconfig
and press enter, that should show you an IP address, if it is 169.xxx.xxx.xxx that means you network card is either bad or not talking to you router of DSL modem , if it is connected to router, bypass the router and connect it directly to modem (cable modem or DSL) and restart the computer, if still does it (meaning 169 still), that means the cord could be bad, (swap it) or that means you network card is BLOCKED from the outside world by a Firewall. diable the firewall, (disable windows firewall first, restart pc, if still, that means you might have an another firewall (some firewalls if they expire, they do a total lock down, meaning, they will not allow you to connect to the outside world, in some cases you might need to uninstall the firewall totally.)

worst case senario , you might need to replace you network card *go to walmart, and get one, they are around the $10 or $12. and replace it. (hoping that you have either XP or vista) if you have an earlier one, do not even bother with it.

Dell Dimension 5150 will not connect to the internet. HELP


Check if your system is able to get an IP address.

Bypass your router to check if its a router connection problem. Connect your computer directly to your modem.

Click on Start>RUN>Type cmd then press enter. On the black box, type ipconfig /all. Check if your system has an IP address. If it says 169.254.x.x or no IP address then there's a oroblem with your connection. Power cycle your modem, router and computer then check your IP address again.

Power cycle your devices: modem - router then computer.

Belkin router when connected will send wireless signal but will not allow mother computer to gain access to internet. tried bridging on dsl, and pinging. when i called belkin the @#$%^& told me it...


Assuming your router is set correctly to your modem or the password and username are set correctly in a modem/router, make sure DHCP is enabled in the router, this gives each pc an ip address automatically.

Go to open internet explorer>tools>internet options>connections tab and ensure never dial a connection is ticked or greyed out. close IE

go to network connections, right click on your wireless adapter>properties>highlight TCP/IP line>properties and make sure that obtain an ip address automatically is ticked.

Open up internet explorer again and click refresh a few times, it will detect the proxy server then should connect, if not then the router configuration is wrong.

Three Firewalls


You can't 'uninstall' the Windows Firewall, just deactivate it. Another option is to turn off the modem firewall (the strongest of the three, now two) and to activate the Windows one (the weakest but most annoying one). Now you stated that you can't use Internet Explorer but everything else was ok, skip IE, use Firefox or Opera.
Good luck!

Netgear connection problem


After you connected the new router to your modem (using the WAN connection on the router) did you restart the modem? Try restarting the modem and the router.
